Around seven Pakistani soldiers were killed on 13 November during ceasefire violations across the Line of Control (LoC) by Indian troops, Pakistani media claimed on 14 November.

"Seven soldiers embraced Shahadat (martyrdom) at the LoC in the Bhimber sector in cross-fire LoC violation by Indian troops late last night," Pakistan's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

Pakistani troops responded to 'unprovoked' Indian firing, and targeted Indian posts effectively, the ISPR alleged.

Earlier on 10 November, Pakistan's Foreign Secretary summoned the Indian High Commissioner and condemned the continued unprovoked firing and ceasefire violations by the Indian security forces.
